The site is a bit simple for now. I'm using Pelican to generate my site as it seems to be the easiest in terms of accessibility.
So, what's the purpose for this?
Well, I got tired of Tumblr's bureaucracy, Twitter's rapid fire and very anti-social ways. Not to mention both sites are very unfriendly for art - both in a technical sense and in people's response.
The ZDoom forums, which I have been using to advertise my works, for many reasons (some beyond the scope of this post) I have decided to just take a financial hit and roll my own site.
While I will still use Twitter in a very limited capacity, and I will still use ZDoom Forums as much as I can, I feel a need for my own personal corner on the internet, with fewer limitations.
What will this site focus on?
- My creative endeavours - this should be obvious. I will be serving development logs on my games using GZDoom engine, but also occasionally my art.
- Occasional personal stuff - occasionally I will be using this site to talk about stuff important to me. I feel none of the sites I mentioned are a good fit for me, both from a technical and a social-political standpoint. However I will try to keep it brief, I know people are not here for that content.
I will try to tag those things accordingly. If I can figure out how to create two different sites from pelican I will do so. I'm a bit rusty, admittedly.
Also I am considering launching a forum at some point, but only if there's enough demand. I'm not much of a community manager outside my personal Discord.
Anyhow, I will be posting posts/pages about Daytime Drama and it's sequel soon. So stay tuned!
